CNN: Trump Believes FISA Abuse Memo Could Discredit the Russia Investigation

‘CNN learning that the president himself is saying the memo could help discredit the Russia investigation’

EXCERPT:

KEILAR: "CNN learning that today is likely to be the day the president makes his decision and if he thought the nation's capital was divided now, the memo's release could take that division to a whole new level. The question is when and how the White House will ignore two of the nation's top law enforcement officials, FBI Chief Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, two men that the Trump administration appointed and, will they release the memo that alleges FBI surveillance abuses? The top Democrat on the House Intel Committee, Adam Schiff, not just opposing its release, but also claiming that the memo's Republican author, committee chair and former Trump transition member, Devin Nunes, made significant changes to it before sending it over to the White House. CNN learning that the president himself is saying the memo could help discredit the Russia investigation. His Chief of Staff John Kelly and House Speaker Paul Ryan also want the memo released."
